Alex Rins will make a tentative comeback at this weeks German MotoGP round following his injury couple of weeks back.
During the build-up for the Catalan GP on June 3rd, Rins suffered a crash while cycling around the Circuit of Barcelona-Catalunya. He was diagnosed by Doctor Xavier Mir with an “articular fracture of the right distal radius with a small displacement and high inflammation”. He underwent surgery at the Universitari Dexeus Hospital in Barcelona which saw the successful fixation of two screws. Two days later he began rehabilitation and gentle training and he has now been cleared to ride.
On Wednesday morning, June 16th, Rins revisited the Universitari Dexeus Hospital to undergo some checks and his stitches were removed before travelling to Sachsenring.
Doctor Xavier Mir
“After removing the stitches and checking his wrist we consider the mobility of the injury is pretty good and he will try to race in Germany. Of course he could suffer some pain during the sessions and he might need some physiotherapy”.
“I went to see Doctor Mir for some checks and I feel quite well. He took out the stitches and the bone seems almost fixed. I have some pain when moving my wrist, so I will keep working on my recovery during these days. In any case, I will try to give it my all. We didn’t race in Sachsenring last year, so I’m really looking forward to getting back on track here in Germany. I’m very pleased to be back with the team; I can’t wait to see them all and return to racing with my GSX-RR.”
